Tumblr on whitewashing

“This person in this one image I’ve cherry-picked isnt the same exact color as they are in this other image I’ve cherry-picked and therefore the people behind it are racist whitewashing garbage.”

let me share something with you.


Me again.

still me.

believe it or not, this is yes– me as a fetus.

Fetus me, outside my house before the concert!! on the SAME DAY [ im even wearing the same shirt]

((whispers)) skin, especially dark skin, can and will look VERY different depending on the lighting, indoors vs outdoors, and the camera itself. Good artists/photographers will take this into consideration.

Now can we please stop having a fit every time a dark-skinned person looks lighter in a damn picture?
